From City Charter High School

Discover what we've known all along...technology
is key to learning.

Distance-Learning Preparedness clearly sets City High apart from other schools just discovering what we’ve always known – technology is essential. From FREE laptops, software skills training and certification, to Google Classrooms and tech support to keep them connected.

BUT, technology itself is not enough. So we use breakthrough methods to keep kids engaged, like looping with the same teachers all 4 years, a year ‘round trimester system and longer class hours, college and career mapping, mentored internships, cultural field trips, on-site fitness, extracurriculars and opportunities to earn college credits.

It’s about doing everything we can to keep kids engaged – and learning – so they are prepared for the real world.

No wonder we have a 95% Graduation Rate and 91% Pittsburgh Promise Scholarship Eligibility!
